Suzi's in da House



We got a new foster doggie today.
Her former owners surrendered her because she's around 14 years old, and has bad teeth. They also said that she won't keep weight on. They wanted her to be euthanized.
Fortunately, the shelter called our rescue group instead. They said we had to pick her up by 5:30 yesterday or she would be put to sleep. Thankfully, the rescue group got them to hold her until today. I picked her up first thing this morning.
She's the sweetest, tiny little thing! Her name is Suzi. She's scared, but friendly with all of us, including dogs, cats, and kids.
I'm so glad we'll be able to provide comfort and love for her, for whatever time she has left.

love that you do that.... we have helped with Airedale Rescue, but since I'm working so much & our fence is now the invisible kind-too hard to handle.

Thanks guys! Corny as it sounds, I look at fostering as a privilege. I thank the group for letting us foster these wonderful dogs. Every one we've had has touched our lives, and the feeling we get from it is indescribable. Not to mention the lesson we're teaching the kids.
We love every minute of it!
